The UK has new salt targets to be met by 2024

In September 2020, Public Health England published the 5th set of voluntary salt reduction targets for the UK, to be achieved by 2024. The salt targets cover 84 specific food categories, 8 more than the 2017 targets. Where there was scope for further reductions, the new targets are progressively lower than previous ones. For the eating out, takeaway and delivery sector, the 2024 targets cover 24 specific food sub-categories, and for many categories the targets are progressively lower than previous. Read more here.
